Higher Education Act Reauthorization: First Round of House Markups
States are uniquely positioned to provide feedback to teacher preparation programs on the effectiveness of the teachers they train. This work requires significant data capacity to reliably and securely link teachers with their students’ achievement and growth data with the state’s teacher preparation programs.

The Highway to High-Quality Student Data Systems
If our destination is improved student achievement, we cannot get there without valuing and effectively using data in education. Central to reaching this goal is building trust among all those who have a stake in education that individual student data, such as attendance, course taking, grades, and test scores, are being collected for meaningful purposes and kept safe, secure, and private.
States rely on data from both the K–12 and postsecondary sectors to inform policy discussions; chart the progress of students, schools, districts, colleges, and the state; pinpoint best practices and areas of need; allocate scarce resources; and make other important education decisions every day. However, states need to securely link limited, but critical, K–12 and postsecondary data to ensure that high school graduates are ready for postsecondary education and to identify the K–12 practices and programs that best prepare students to succeed in college.
